WASHINGTON, D.C.—On Wednesday, Ginnie Mae revised the pooling requirements for re-performing loans with the publication of All Participants Memorandum (APM) 23-03. The APM announces a reduced seasoning period for re-performing loans and that Ginnie Mae will allow re-performing loans that meet those requirements to be pooled into the TBA Eligible Multi-Issuer Pools.
Per APM 23-03, the reduced seasoning requirements for re-performing loans are:
(1) The borrower has made timely payments for the 3 months immediately preceding the issuance month associated with the mortgage-backed securities (MBS), and
(2) The MBS issue date is at least 120 days from the last date the loan was delinquent.
Please consult the APM for more detailed information regarding this change.
